To the person looking back at this note. You’re not who you used to be. A rare gem amongst fake pearls. A solid background holds you up. Confidence and courage surround your name. You’ve made it this far, gone further than their eyes could see. The stars still shine on you. I’m proud of you brown skin lady. Keep going, don’t look back. Don’t worry. You hold pictures of those that matter, of the ones that love you. Don’t stop. If no one tells you I’m here to remind you; you’re fearless, strong, beautiful, confidence, independent, brown and proud. Should anything change, remember to stay grounded. If you fall get back up. Here’s to you.
